Flowers are widely used in perfume, and different scents are produced depending on how they are mixed and matched. This season’s new perfumes adds some attitude and personality to the fragrance of flowers.
Famous Italian perfume brand Acqua di Parma is known for their fresh and light scents. The scent of their new perfume Colonia Futura includes ingredients like lemon, grapefruit, pink pepper, as well as lavender, bergamot and clary sage. The vibrant and lilting faint floral scent is both dreamy and refreshing at the same time.
Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris L'Homme A la Rosea
Personally concocted by Francis Kurkdjian, this is the first rose perfume from MKF’s perfume line for men, after having released a rose fragrance for women a few years ago. This time round, they chose a blend of the damask rose, may rose, grapefruit, sage and Spanish labdanum, giving this fragrance a sense of vitality. The smell of the rose is not too strong and seems to be hidden beneath the layers, creating a mysterious, lingering scent.
Gucci Bloom Profumo Di Fiori
The striking honey yellow glass bottle is filled with the scent of various flowers. It subtly combines tuberose and jasmine sambac together with ylang ylang, sandalwood and sun drenched woody notes to create a rich floral scent. Musky notes and benzoin are then added in add a level of sophistication.
Jo Malone London Fig & Lotus Flower and Cypress & Grapevine
This is the first male and female matching fragrances from Jo Malone London. The brand excels at creating dreamy floral scents, and it’s no different this time round. Inspired by the ancient Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the scents will lead you into an aromatic world. The female fragrance Fig & Lotus Flower is a light and fresh floral scent that include neroli and grapefruit, while the male fragrance Cypress & Grapevine is a woodsy and earthly scent that has notes of amber, grapevine and cypress, giving it a bold, intense and moody vibe.
Chloe Rose Tangerine
This is Chloe’s Eau de Toilette version of their Chloe Signature perfume. While it retains the rose scent, ingredients like tangerine, black currant, cedar and white amber have also been added to give the EDT more personality and make it more distinctive. English actress Lucy Boynton, who embodies the free spirit and spontatenity of the Chloe woman, is the face and muse of this unique fragrance.
Marc Jacobs Perfect
Every person has their own unique beauty. No one is flawless, but as long as we love ourselves, we will be perfect. The new perfume from Marc Jacobs is a celebration of self-love, and uses rhubarb and bright daffodils to create a fresh and vibrant floral scent. The fragrance finishes with cedarwood and cashmeran that draws you into a strong embrace and reminds you, when was the last time you gave yourself a hug?
